The ocean stayed good through the week with fishing to match. Lots of Lings up to 25lbs. plus and limits of colored rock fish and even a couple of Bocaccio. Sunday6 boat limits of Cab's. Crabs are big and pretty much full. The bay was consistently good but really crowded. The work is out and with slow fishing in other places - Here they come!

How about a week straight of ocean fishing and good to great bay trolling. Ya, we'll take it and a lot of it and it felt good to say the least.
High lights of the week:
Complete full limits of rock fish all color - no Blacks/Blues.
Ling cod limits in 1 hour/ 1 drift.
Dropped rod into the ocean - snagged and retrieved by buddy's rod - second time this season. Th1 - thinking back this has happened five times over the years and have gotten back four of them - three within five minutes - one in two weeks - hard to believe but trust stranger than fiction.
Multiple fish over 20lbs. for bay trolling.
A 45lb. halibut on a bottom fish trip.
Three Bacaccio in one day - most years we don't catch three for the season.
Ten Cabazon in one day for one boat - hadn't caught ten in the previous month.
Not a high light but one day Jeff got skunked on a half day bay troll - day before and day after 3 to 4 fish for the boat - Fishin!
So - next week?????

I was gone to Kona for eight days last week for some really good fishing and catching so that's why no report for awhile. Back now and have had five straight days to the ocean. Probably jinxed it now that I said it out loud. The ocean has been really really nice and really really crummy through those five days. The fish has been good to excellent. Lots of color. Some days all color for rock fish limits. Ling cod limits all but one day when it was to rough to go where we needed to. Crabbing has been great. So Gold Beach fishing at it's finest. Bay trolling for salmon has been up and down with plenty of fish around and caught if you can deal with all the boats!!! Slow fishing in other areas and the forecast for a great year with last years memories are making for a lot of angler effort. One high light - Wyatt, Jeff's 9 year old son reeled and landed a 37.5lb. salmon with his cousin and uncles on Saturday. It was a whopper!
